President Wilson's Mistake.
^ The Washington Herald believes that President Wilson is the
greatest man of this age. We have supported him in every issue,
because we believed in him and admired him. We will continue to
support President Wilson, but we express our disapproval at his effort
to assume the position of political dictator for the United States.
When President Wilson issued an appeal to the American people in
behalf of the Democratic party we believe that he made the one re
grettable mistake of his administration.
We say this not because our political faith is Republican. Neither
is it Democratic. The Washington Herald has no entangling alliances
either political or otherwise. But we emphasize that President Wilson
made a mistake, because the fundamental principle of a democracy is
political freedom.
When President Wilson speaks the world listens and obeys. He
has spoken many times in the past month and every word has met
with the approval of the world. When we refer to the world we elim
inate the enemy as part of it No one has raised a dissenting voice
against the will of our President. America feels proud that such an
honor should fall to an American.
At this particular time President Wilson wields a greater power
than Alexander, Napoleon or the Kaiser could have ever hoped to
hold should their ambitious dreams of world dominion have mate
ria'ized. And rightly so. These three emperors strove to rule the
world by conquest, by force, by murder. Such criminal intentions
rannot hope to succeed. Crowned with partial success for the mo
ment their course must lead to a destructive end. But President Wil
son is a world power because he rules by the laws of freedom, justice,
equality; virtues which know no defeat and must ultimately prevail.
Mighty as the President's power is, we do not think that it en
titles him to govern, or even influence, the electoral will and judgment
of the people of a republic. It is one of the very first elements of our
Constitution that the choice of the people in the election of public offi
cials should be their own choice. Politics deteriorates only when this
ire? will is trammeled by designing outward influence. Democracy is
the one principle for which we are at war.
President Wilson declares in his appeal to voters that the minor
ity in the present Congress has unquestionably been pro-war but anti
admimstration Here we have another principle of democracy. It is
the privilege 01 a representative of the people, and the people them
selves to be anti-administration whenever their self-judgment dictates
?uch an action. Suppose President Wilson's administration would not
be in accord with the people. Would it be improper for the people to
turn anti-administration? Unquestionably not, for the objecting voice
of the people could give us an administration in keeping with the
wishes of the people
President Wilson says that his power to administer the great trust
assigned him by the Constitution would be impaired if a Republican
majority should be elected to cither house of Congress. If a Repub-!
Iican majority is elected we believe that it will reflect the wishes of a|
majority oi the people. This is after all the people's war and each I
has his voice in determining its destinies. As a people's war each has!
responsibility and each patriot assumes it, we believe, not to the dctri-1
ment of the President's trust but to share his burden in carrying it to
a successful conclusion.
"Often President Wilson has thrown precedent to the winds and I
wo? 'he plaudits ot the public. His political appeal to "My Fellow;
Countrymen'' is also unprecedented, but we say that it is not in keep- j
?ng-with the high office which President Wilson holds and certainly |
notJn keeping with his praiseworthy actions of the past.
?We do not believe that "politics is adjourned," using President i
\\ iUon s own words
Learn to Live Outdoors.
.Most 01 us are already planning what we shall do "when the
bov* come home"
They have beer, away so long, on such a dangerous, heroic mis
rioiT. that when they come back we will love them more, and treat
theon better than ever before. We will appreciate them?and take
mo{c time from our foolish hurryings for love and comradeship. We
wilV spend more time enjoying the human companionship of the boys
and* each other.
But if we spent more time with them we'll have to spend it
out.ot doors?tor THEY won't stay in the house to play!
The men in the army and navy, drawn from the cooped-up
places of modern social and industrial life, have suddenly been
taught the uses and delights of plain, every-day fresh air. They like
it so well that they won't be content with any other kind. They
have learned what it is to sleep under the stars?a joy once re
served to tramps and poets. They have watched the exhuberant glory
and triumph of rosy sunrise, and learned the solemn beauty of creep
ing twilights.
"In Flanders Field, where poppies grow," they have learned a
new and mighty language of the common grass and flowers, and thrill
10 the song of the lark that braves the battlefields as they never
thrilled to solemn organ tones.
A day in June or October is more to them than a square on the
calendar. It is a God-given time of sun and air, and work and play,
and friendship and service?a glorious period of full use of mind and I
soul and body?for splendor of living unguessed in the old cooped-up I
life of indoors. 1
The soldiers have learned that outdoors is not just an inter
lude between work and home and amusement Outdoors is freedom
and health and happiness?and if we want to work and play with
them hereafter wc too shall have to follow them out of doors. .
What allied statesman has the nose to sit down to a peace |
table with a German'
Look out tor this "kamerad" stuff. There's a hand grenade con-1
cealed somewhere.
Mastery of retreat we cancede to the Hun; but look at the |
practice he's had
"Tanks awfully" doesn't mean the same to the Huns that it I
means in the slums.
The Teuton Flag.
Tear down the Hun Kaiser's flag;
Halfmast Hate's polluted rag;
Destroy it, all who can;
Deep sink it in the waves.
It binds our feMow-men
' To groan with fellow-slaves.
It shields a pirate's decks;
And 'ncath its bloody folds
Are heard the clank of rustling chains
Awake the burning scorn.
The vengeance long and deep;
That, till a better morn,
Shall rcither tire nor sleep.
Swear once again the vow.
By all we hope and dream.
That what we suffer now
The future shall redeem.
Now and then the United States
Senate, the greatest legislative body
in the world, does things which
even some of its most uninformed
'qtftlcs never thought It would do.
Witness the confirmation of Al
bert Strauss Thursday.
The confirmation took Place without
a committee meeting to formally ap
prove It and without a majority of
the committee being in the city to
pass upon It. , . .
Senator Hitchcock, vice chairman or
thu Banking and Currency Commit
tee acted as chairman in this matter
He merely told the Senate it was not
desirable to leave the matter on the
executive calendar longer. Several
members of the r-ommittee had agreed
on a poll to the confirmation, but not
a majority was present, the Nebraa
kan said. The Senate understood and
without questioninr anything voted
to speed Mr. Strauss across the plat
ter on the last lap of his official trip.
Secretary McAdoo, so we are told
"Just before going to press." was
mightily pleased with this action be
cause it disposed, of a matter that he
has had cm his mind for some time
past. And "Mac" has so many things
on his mind, anyway, he does not
court the opportunity of leaving any
of them there too long. There are
enough new things coming up every
day to prevent his mind being bur
dened with ennui.
Thomas W. Law son is making a
campaign in Massachusetts which
places John W. Weeks, contender tor
the Senatorial toga, in a class with
Boies Penrose.
In a startling pamphlet which he
alludes to as the political murder of
Samuel McCall. Mr. Lawson makes it
perfectly clear that he doesn't have
any use at all for Weeks, and that if
the entire McCall faction of the Re
publican party ccmes over to him on
election day he will do nothing to
turn them away.
The race is between David Walsh,
the Democrat, and Mr. Weeks, the
Republican holder of the toga at the
present?and with Mr. Luwson as the
third candidate. If Mr. Lawson can
win the McCall following and inde
pendents away from Weeks he may
make it possible for Walsh to win.
This is a chance at least to get even
with Weeks, he thinks, and the vote
may turn that way. so some of the
folks say there.
As election approaches members
of the two parties in Congress, par
ticularly in the Senate, are more
than anxious to have the dread day
over with. Control of the House and
Senate is a prize worth while. If
the Democrats keep it they expect
to be able to get their reward by
a national victory in 1920.
If not. they fear that disturbing
influences might be brought into the
equation which would seriously im
pair their chances at success two
years hence. There are reports
from states which indicate that it
is hard to tell Just what may happen
this year. The political leaders
have been trying to make figures on
the old line-ups but they are not
entirely successful at this and ad
mit there are situations which puz
zle them exceedingly.
This is the first war election since
That year the cry was: "Support
the Republican administration be
cause an overthrow of it would
mean Joy in Spain."
The Democrats tried to combat
that issue but they found it hard to
do so. and the results of the elec
tions that year were far from sat
isfying to them.
"The Democrats this year are cry
ing: "Support the Democratic ad
ministration because an overthrow
of it would mean joy in Germany."
The Republicans are trying to
combat this cry?and think they |
have done so?but it will remain for
the days immediately following No
vember 5 to reveal that to the coun
Farmers of the West are asking
that as long as some liberties have
been taken with their wheat the
price of corn should be fixed at $1.75
a bushel and the price of oa's at 75
cents a bushel.
The demand has been growing in |
view of the-fact that corn dropped
50 cents a bushel there in ten days
ending yesterday and hogs dropped
$2 a hundred in the same ten days.!
The figures mean more to Wash
ington folks than they suspect.
While these commodities have
been going down at a wonderful
rate the prices of ham and bacon
have actually been rising here.
The price to the consumer has gone
up?which makes the consumers
boil and the price to the producer
has gone down which makes the
producers more than disgusted. The
difference between the production
price and the consumption price is
greater than it has been in years?
and somewhere along the line of
marching a hog from a Kansas or
Iowa pen to Broadway THERE ARE
BIG MEN getting rich.
The farmers of the West are say
ing "If the Food Administration
cannot handle this situation then
for God's sake get someone who
can." And the farmers' cry is very
insistent, for many of them were
"inveigled" into raising hogs, they
say. at promised good prices, and
now they find they may not get as
much out of them as they put into
Another interesting observation.
Said Mr. Hoover: "We need wheat
badly so let all good farmers of the
country sow much winter wheat for
the 1919 harvest"
Says Mr. Julius Barnes, head of
the U. S. grain corporation, an olT
shoot of Mr. Hoover's organization.
"We have too much ground planted
to wheat. We have large enough
acreage. If we plant too much it
will be at the expense of the forage
The ideas are conflicting, and
which of them is being used as the
moving Impulse of the Food Admin
istration's operations in the great
agricultural parts of the country, is
said not to have been revealed thus
By John Kendrlck Ban#*.
If on the morrow it be clear.
Why I'll be glad and full of cheer
For all the wealth of golden light
To lead me on from morn night.
And if tomorrow bring me rain.
Why I'll be full of cheer again. I
Because despite it be not fair.
Its falling clarifies the air.
And if a tempest rends the skies. i
Once more will cheer flash from1
mine eyes |
As. facing it all fearlessly.
It blows vigor into me.

3,257 Dogs Impounded
During Year in D. C.
According to the annual report of
George W. Rae, poundmaster. 3.257
dogs were impounded during the fis
cal year ended June 30, 3918. Four
hundred and seventy-five of these
were redeemed and released the re
mainder being kijled.
There were 2,555 cats, seven horses,
one mule and two cows impounded
during the year. The pound was
operated at an expense of $6,791.51.
Huns Massacre the Wounded.
It is a funny thing, but a soldier in
action always thinks it's the other
fellow who is going get bowled
over. Men were dropping all around
me wounded or kilied or because the
fire was too hot to proceed. I ran
along exultant and tremendously ex
"They can't hit me. the ? ? ?
(sons of guns. I was goinir to say)."
But at that moment a bullet hit me
in the head and dropped me.
Within a short time Germans were
swarming around me and I was a
prisoner. Before long German officers
had gathered up all wounded and un
bounded prisoners able to walk and
made of them a screen to protect
their final assault against our posi
tion on the hill. Even that was not
so bad as using civilians, as the Hun
often does. The situation was very
bad when the Germans emerged witn
their prisoner-screen in front of their
fixed bayonets. Six runners had been
sent back and were presumably killed.
No supplies were in sight. The Can
adian ofTicer in charge decided that
it was useless to kill his own men in
an effort to stop the Germans in his
then desperate plight. He therefore
In the meantime German "moppers.
up" were working down our trench
toward me. All our wounded who
could not walk back were killed on
the spot. Dugouts full of wounded
were blown up by hand grenades.
Those in the open were bayoneted or
shot in cold blood. And all this was
done, as I afterward learned, because
the German Red Cross ambulances
would be busy for three days taking
their own non-walking cases back.
Humane kultur would not leave us
to suffer and die of exposure and so
it was killing us. Two of my com
rades from the hill, freshly made
prisoners, found me and carried me
back when the mutviering "moppers
up" were within only fifty feet of me.

It Can't Be Done.
I doubt if there is a combination of words which has proved more
generally detrimental to business advancement. I always feel out of
place with the man who starts to argue about the good old times that
used to be, and what can't be done any more.
They talked this way thirty years ago, to my own personal knowl
